Hi Mystie, welcome to the forum.

What are you trying to do? Transfer files? Update the OS? Wipe the PB?

DM is compatible with W8.

You do not need to use DM to transfer files over. You should be able to connect your PB to your PC and open it up in Windows Explorer.

It should show up as a drive. You can also transfer files over your WiFi network.

if the pb software isn't working, uninstall and reinstall it.
